Story

This late Victorian era bangle of 14k rose gold is elaborately decorated with black "email de taille d'epargne". This technique involves cutting patterns in a surface, such as gold and filling in said designs with enamel, typically black or blue in color. Different from champleve enameling in which most of the surface is covered with the enamel, this style is used for finer accenting.

The entire bracelet, with its wondrous texturing, is engraved all along the surface with black enamel tracery patterning. Appointed with bird, forget-me-not flowers and sailboat motifs, its message is clear - awaiting a loved one, anticipation with hope. The bracelet is secured with a hidden tongue and groove clasp as well as a link safety chain.
